This promotional film from the 1920's really helps put the early days of motoring in perspective. It's amazing to see the level of agility and durability of these early models. The car in this video was introduced in 1924 for a total coast of about $850.00 (about $10,000.00 today).

I don't know of any car you could buy today with the off-road capabilities of car of this era. Do you?
